31DC: Day 25 - Inspired by fashion (Glitter glue nail art)

Hi everyone!
So, um, yeah...I cheated for this one. I didn't use nail polish! I know, I feel weird about it, but hey...if beaded nails are nail art, well then this counts too. Right? I saw this on Pinterest and immediately fell in love. I wanted to show the glittery-ness of this skirt so I used glitter glue. It took a long time to get it done and each nail stayed wet for like forever. Not sure how I like the end result but I had fun trying it out.
INSPIRATION:  Emilio Pucci sequined skirt

I used Martha Stewart Glitter Glue in the small squeezy tubes.  The first 3 photos are without top coat. The following 3 photos have HK Girl top coat.


 I sent my husband a pic of this (he was at work) and asked what he thought. He very diplomatically said "Do you like it?" He's a keeper, eh? Anyway...Do YOU like it?? :)

Thanks for being here!

  3. It's different! I think you rerpsented the skirt really well... and new ideas are always welcomed (I may have to buy some glitter glue!).

    Was this a pain to remove?

    1. I had a clear basecoat on under the glitter, and this came right off..easier than actual glitter polish :P

  4. Looks very sparkly and pretty! I like it! It does look a bit bulky, but a lot of chunky glitters do, too :-). Nice idea!
